Back, With Some Things To Do…

Musical Brotherhoods from the Trans-Saharan Highway

Tonight, at the BBC Tap Room at 636 E. Main Street, the Louisville Film Society and Wild n’ Woolly Video present films from Sublime Frequencies and the Alan Lomax Archive (full article here):

Sublime Frequencies promotes ignored cultural and musical genius from nearly all corners of the non-Western world. Filmmaker Hisham Mayet will attend Tuesday’s Louisville premier of both his “Palace of the Winds” and “Musical Brotherhoods from the Trans-Saharan Highway,” which have yet to be released on DVD. Opening the evening will be rare film clips of the late Big Chief Jake Million and his White Eagles Mardi Gras Indian gang in New Orleans, shot in 1982 by Alan Lomax for his “American Patchwork” PBS series.

It’s at 8:30 PM, $5 ($3 for Louisville Film Society Members), and you are advised to bring your own chair.
